Hi ladies, I am 37 weeks pregnant and have been having sporadic pelvic pressure for several weeks, but all day today it is constant and fairly intense pressure in my pelvic/vaginal area. I am not contracting (just braxton hicks) and have no increased discharge. Any ideas on what this might be? Thanks in advance.
You get A LOT and i mean A LOT of that pressure especially towards the end of pregnancy. The baby is moving down and getting ready for birth. With my kids, I thought they were actually going to come out right then and there. Especially when they kick/punch or even move on your pelvic area, it was sometimes unbareable!!! just know that you are getting close and what you are feeling is normal!!! Good luck to you...its coming soon!!! BEST WISHES!!!
